What you'll learn

  • Explore the techniques used to continuously measure the security posture and maturity of a third-party service provider

Description

Securing the digital fortress has been a security best practice for the past few decades. However, data breaches continue to occur. Often, the impenetrable fortress approach neglects third-party service providers, which extend the data processing ecosystem. A static point-in-time questionnaire during the procurement phase is no longer adequate. Paul Poh explores the techniques used to continuously measure the security posture and maturity of a third-party service provider.
